Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Sam,

Thanks for posting that. It is really cool. Like the one you posted, this one is also illustrating the effects of the kesho-hadori polish:



and



It is cool how the first-above video uses a red line to indicate where the hadori has been, and a black line where the actual nioi-guchi is--also illustrating the point by manipulating the light so the hataraki can be seen "through" the kesho polish on-camera! COOL! It illustrates a good kesho-polish, and how to see through them to really inspect the "true" nioi-guchi
